A Lamborghini preview event broke news of the upcoming Lamborghini Urus Performante EV
Going full electric by the end of the decade, the Lamborghini Urus Performante EV is set to make its debut in 2029. Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed the news at a recent event in Sant’Agata.
Winkelmann disclosed to the press that the Lamborghini Urus Performante EV would be released a year after the company’s first ever EV. Although he claimed that the two battery-powered models will help the company reduce emissions by 80% from what they are now, the announcement was scant on providing additional information of the vehicles themselves.
“In ’28 and ’29 we will have our first two BEVs,” stated Winkelmann. “We will have a fourth model, so today we have three models. It will be the first one to be completely a BEV car in 2028. And then in 2029 there will be the new Urus.”
Lamborghini intends to “hybridize” its lineup up until that point with the introduction of an Aventador HEV in 2023, a Huracan PHEV in late 2024, and a Urus PHEV SUV in 2024. As it works toward its first fully electric vehicle, there’s no doubt that Lamborghini’s immediate focus is on hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.
Not much is known about Lamborghini’s first series production hybrid, despite the fact that it will be revealed in the coming weeks. The Italian luxury sports car manufacturer stated earlier this week that its powertrain will feature a naturally aspirated V-12 and three electric motors that can produce up to 1,001 horses.
